Let's cut to the chase here -- buy these the first time you read this, or they're going to be gone! There aren't that many of these flexible chopping mats, and the versatile 15" x 12" x 0.024" thick mats are not only ideal for small kitchens where every inch counts, they're great for any kitchen, and for cookouts, camping and picnics. Our each is a set of (2) of the translucent Euro-look mats that protect countertops from sharp knives and fresh-from-the-oven cookies, and protect food from outdoor surfaces. They can be lifted and slightly folded to funnel chopped food neatly into a pot. They're dishwasher safe, and roll up for portage or storage.
A lovely mini-funnel, made for pouring Dad's special medicine into a hip flask, but just dandy for filling salt and pepper shakers or anything else with a little yap. Stainless steel with a 1-3/8" ID intake mouth and a 5/16" ID outlet. 1-7/8" tall OA.
The smart cutters and choppers these days are using ceramic knives because they stay so sharp for so long, and who remembers to have their knives sharpened? Ours measure 7" long over all, with a deep aqua handle, a 3" blade and a sheath. Don't go into the kitchen without one. Slice, dice, chop and mince, and forget about sharpening. Like you always do.
We’ve all seen coffee cups designed to look like toilet bowls, but this, we are proud to say, is easily the most dignified, tasteful toilet-bowl in the world. In white ceramic (much like the real thing) it’s 5.75” tall x 6” wide and holds 14 oz. Nice big grip under the tasteful tank, too. Sorry, no discount for a service for 8.
Our hand-held knife and scissors sharpener has a pair of tungsten carbide heads pre-set at the correct angle for keeping an edge on things. Just rest the blade in the notch and pull. Pistol-grip style with a guard, in black plastic. Measures 6" x 5/8" wide, with reversible and replaceable carbide cutting heads.
No home is really complete until there's a Doctor Who salt and pepper shaker set on the table. Just over 3" tall, the pepper lives in a black Dalek and the salt lives in a lovely blue Tardis. Genuine authorized BBC products, too. Accept no counterfeit Daleks.
This 4" wide plastic bulldog clip has serrated jaws to hang on tight, and a light fridge-strength magnet on the back. We’ll pick five (5) from our selection of gray, light blue or bluish-greenish-blue clips adorned with assorted misprints. You can ignore the words. You can also ignore the magnet and just use them to reseal your nacho chips, which makes them chip clips.
Georges Braque would have loved the tiny ice cubes that come out of the lid of this plastic box, but then he was a cubist. You'll like them just because they're cute. Pop (20) 15/16" cubes out of the tray, then store them underneath in the 7" x 6-1/4" x 4-1/8" plastic box.
Please don't call us, just accept the fact that these extremely cute salt and pepper shakers came to us as one-hole salt and two-hole pepper shakers, probably originally from American Airlines. They're both in white ceramic with two skinny blue stripes (the AA tip-off), 1-1/2" tall x 1" dia, with pretty tiny holes. Just put what you want in whichever one you like.
